Briton Ferry to host Welsh Football League Cup winners Trefelin in Port Talbot derby
Briton Ferry Llansawel will host fellow Port Talbot side Trefelin Boys & Girls Club at Old Road in the next round of the Welsh Football League Cup.
The Reds needed penalties to beat Division Three side Panteg on penalties on Saturday, whilst current cup holders Trefelin narrowly beat Dinas Powys.
In a fixture headache, Port Talbot will have to wait twice for their opponents, with them scheduled to face the winner out of the Aberbargoed Buds vs Treowen Stars match, before then the winner of that tie, facing Aberdare Town.
There are three all Welsh Football League Division One side clashes. Cwmamman United host Penybont, Undy Athletic host Cambrian & Clydach and Haverfordwest County host Llantwit Major, after their nine-goal thriller with Bridgend Street.
Pontyclun and Penydarren, both of Division Three, clash for a place in the Quarter Finals of the Cup, whilst Goytre United host Ynysygerwn.
The draw was done at the monthly Welsh Football League AGM yesterday, where STM Sports manager Dale Gardiner was named Manager of the Month for August and the club were awarded Club of the Month.
Manager Dale Gardiner said, “Thank you to all the players at STM Sports for earning me the Welsh League Manager of the Month award for August. You’re like machines at the moment, each and every one of you.
Congratulations also to all the players, Nathan Cadette and our chairmen Nigel Bircham and Geza Hajgato for winning the Club of the Month award again, brilliant achievement by all of you.”
STM Sports have a home tie for a second consecutive round as they host Garden Village, after hammering Tredegar Town at Llanrumney University Fields last Saturday.
All ties are set to be played on the 2nd and 3rd of November.
